A co-production between Croatia's Interfilm and Serbia's Zillion Film, On the Other Side is the story of Vesna, a middle-aged visiting nurse in Zagreb. Quietly, she goes about her daily life of mundane chores: babysitting for her son, helping her daughter prepare for her wedding and so on. But then, out of the blue, she gets a call from her husband, Žarko, who left his family on the eve of the war in Croatia to fight for “the other side”, as a captain in the Yugoslav National Army. His reappearance after 20 years sends her carefully reconstructed life into a tailspin, endangering her new identity.
